And Then, Oakland Stopped Making Errors: A's 5, Dodgers 4

Kind of a lousy game for Hiroki Kuroda, who's only had one good game since returning from the DL, his June 6 outing against Philadelphia. Kuroda gave up all five runs, all of them earned, four of them on home runs.

By far, the most entertaining part of this game was the bottom of the seventh, and not just because the Dodgers came back; it was the manner of the comeback that made it so enjoyable, for the A's managed to assemble a frame full of fielding fun:

Adam Kennedy had earlier screwed up a routine 4-3 groundout that should have been an inning-ender in the fifth; instead, the Dodgers scored on Hudson's single. And still, despite having been given those breaks and another besides, the Dodgers couldn't rally.

One of those games, I guess.

And an incidental congratulation to Mitch Jones, who got his first major league hit in this game, a bleeder off the glove of — I think — the second baseman, Kennedy in the eighth.
